My husband and I walked the entire Crites Cemetery yesterday. It is in deplorable condition. Totally overgrown and infested with snakes and ticks. We took photos of all stones we could find and free of debris and snakes.

I descend from the Crites and wanted to record all stones before they were completely destroyed. It seems I was too late for those you requested. None of them could be found. Although this cemetery is supposed to have perpetual care, it has not been cared for and will not last another 5 years. I have posted directions under the photo on the cemetery page if you would like to visit it.

I have all of the photos for Hillside cemetery on my computer. A few years ago, as I was transcribing the cemetery, I took photos of the monuments as I went along. Someday, I'll get them all on Find A Grave.

Peter Windsor- Fairview Ceme. - Oswego County
Hello, I went to the Williamstown Historical Society today to see if they had any record of Peter Winsor. The information they gave me was he was known as C.P- Christopher Peter Winsor and also Peter C. and I believe they had a book they've printed to sell, with his photograph in it. His birth date is listed as Dec. 20, 1828 in Little Falls. His death date is listed as Nov. 5, 1908 in Lacona, town of Sandy Creek. Buried in Fairview but where? For more information on the book you may contact the Williamstown Historical Society. You may want to contact: Town Historian- Glenna She has a wealth of information on the Windsors and asked me to let you know to contact her. She may have a few questions as well. Thanks! :)

There is no cooperation from the San Luis Cemetery with Find A Grave volunteers. However, according to the San Luis Obispo County Genealogical Society you can request a photo you are looking for by doing the following:
email to
subject line San Luis Cemetery Headstone photo
They will send you the photo as an attachment to email. They took photos of the thousands of headstones they indexed in 2009.
As a reference here is the website for the index
Best wishes.

RE: Mary Palmer & Ven Avery
The Sardis emetery was a real mess! It was covered with brush, limbs from the large trees there, grass(tall), dead leaves from the past several years--a real mess! I searched among all this but found nothing. Very interesting cemetery in that from the end of the road where I left my truck, I had to walk thru a cow pasture, across a small stream, up a hill and walk still more until I spotted the cemetery. I surmise that a road once went by the cemetery due to the fact it was such a distance from where the road ended. It was a good time to search here because when the weather warms it will be too weedy and snakey and covered with weeds and high grass. It was a good spring jant! Gale Yocum

RE: Barbara Harris
You're quite welcome. That columbarium is on the extreme west side of the cemetery (backs onto a flood channel), and away somewhat from the street - so it is pretty quiet. cb

RE: Hudson Harris and Rowana Spink
You're very welcome! I posted a headstone for the elder Seneca Spink,died in 1849 as well, but noticed the younger Seneca Spink died in 1876, his headstone which is laying flat on the ground is also posted on the elder Seneca's page.I took a photo of both Seneca and his wife Rowana's stones laying flat beside each other. Her stone in three pieces. His above hers in the photo.

Old Ashford Cemetery
I went to this cemetery in Ashford CT today and found the gravestone of Dr. Nehennah Howe. It has fallen on the ground and the rain/snow have eroded some of the writing..but I was able to read his name.
Good luck with your genealogy,

The 1st picture I took didn't turn out well and it was a while before I got back to take the 2nd one. Glad it turned out.

Lockney Cemetery Brewsters
Just wanted to let you know I had added several Brewsters buried in the same area in the Lockney Cemetery in Lockney Texas. If you want to take these memorials please just let me know! God Bless You....

Since my friend Holly took pictures for Ann Gist and Charles Gist I thought I would go to the library to look up their obituaries. One is from 1907 and the other 1930. They are hard to read, they may not scan well. I could mail them to you if you are interested.

You're very welcome, it was my pleasure. There were also pictures of Galen Lee & Leola M Rose and Robert C and Helen Fay Shirley in the same area which I also took. Let me know if you would like them forwarded as well.

RE: John Tadlock

You are most welcome. I'm glad that I was able to help.

I've transferred Jessie's memorial over to your care. To request the transfer of John's memorial, you should use the Suggest a Correction under the Edit button on his memorial and request the transfer from the Lloyd's.

Have a Happy Easter.

Take care,

John Tadlock
I just added the photo for John's memorial.

From the map for Lawn AN, I also found his wife Jessie Baker Tadlock. I did verify that they were living in Los Angeles in the 1930 Census. I've created a memorial for Jessie and will transfer it over to you if you wish. I'm sorry to say that there isn't a headstone for Jessie.

Take care,

Elmer Gingrich - Inglewood Cemetery
Hello. I am about to fulfill your photo request. Elmer is buried with Hazel Gingrich (his wife?) There was not a memorial for Hazel so I created one and added the photos. I linked them, but if they were not husband and wife, let me know and I will remove the link.

I hope the addition of Hazel will benefit you in your further research.

RE: Mary Dousett
my pleasure. It was a good experience for me as well as I had my fifteen year old son out there helping me with looking for and taking pictures of graves. It was some good father/son time for us. We don't get enough of it. I was pretty impressed with her headstone. It actually had another persons name on the back of it, possibly a daughter or something. Enjoy life, it is too short y'know!
